Year 1

  1. To establish a genomic and skeletal muscle cDNA library of Pacific threadfin;
  3. To identify at least 50 microsatellite loci and develop PCR protocols for optimal amplification of the markers;
  5. To collect fin clip samples from the OI and AFRC broodstock populations and analyze polymorphic DNA markers in these samples.

Year 2

  1. To develop a microsatellite DNA-based method of parental assignment;
  3. To collect fin clip samples from the wild populations (Oahu and Hawaiian Islands) and characterize their genetic diversities using established DNA microsatellite markers;
  5. To develop DNA-based testing protocols for monitoring Pacific threadfin broodstock and wild populations.
